Escape to the blue waters of the Mediterranean to explore Greece and Turkey by land and by sea. Begin your Greek vacation in legendary Athens-site of Greek mythology, the first Olympians, and epic literature. Your off-season escape to Greece is packed with iconic historical sites, including Olympia’s Gymnasium, temples of Hera and Zeus, and other fascinating ancient ruins. Take in spectacular views of the sea on your way to Delphi. Enjoy a cooking demonstration and learn to make traditional tzatziki. Raise a glass of Ouzo while learning the dance of Zorba the Greek-the Sirtaki. Explore Delphi’s mountainside sanctuary of the god Apollo, and tour the archaeological excavations and museum, home to the extraordinary 5th-century-BC bronze statue of The Charioteer.

Embark on your exciting Aegean cruise from Piraeus to Istanbul, Turkey. Stroll through Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar, and explore the former city of Constantinople-walking in the footsteps of the sultans of the Ottoman Empire. Hear the legend of Jason and the Argonauts in the Greek coastal city of Volos, then cruise to Crete-the largest of the Greek Islands. Here, visit Knossos, center of the 3,000-BC Minoan civilization. Stroll amid the whitewashed buildings and blue rooftops above the sea. Head to Santorini (weather permitting), “The Black Pearl of the Aegean,” for an included excursion to the cliff-top Oia before sailing to Mykonos to relax amid windmills, shops, and tavernas. Return to Athens to visit the Acropolis, see the Parthenon, Temple of Athena Nike, and more during the off season with fewer crowds and lower prices!
